Canary Wharf Screen
The Canary Wharf Screen project launches later this week, bringing a series of artists' films to Canary Wharf underground station. The trailer below shows a selection of the works that will be projected in the station's vast ticket hall...
The project is part of the Art on the Underground initiative, which commissions artists to create works for display in and around the Underground. Canary Wharf Screen, which is programmed in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella, Animate Projects, LUX and the BFI, will begin later this week and run for a year. There will be four screening seasons: the first is based on the theme 'The City in the City', and will explore different versions of city life. Artists who are showing works in this season include Suki Chan, Marcus Coates, Dryden Goodwin, Melanie Manchot, Karen Mirza and Brad Butler.

CR in Print
Thanks for visiting the CR website, but if you are not also reading CR in print you're missing out. Our March issue is an illustration special with features on Clifford Richards, Pick Me Up, the relationship between illustrators and writers, the making of the cover of the New York Times Magazine and a powerful essay by Lawrence Zeegen calling on illustrators to become more engaged with the wider world and accusing the profession of withdrawing "from the big debates of our society to focus on the chit-chat and tittle-tattle of inner-sanctum nothingness".
The best way to make sure you receive CR in print every month is to subscribe – you will also save money and receive our award-winning Monograph booklet every month. You can do so here.
Why waste it on the bankers?
Great video and seems like a really good project. Nice to hear that artists are still getting the chance to show off their creative skills.
